His heart was as frozen as
the frost in his eyes
He remembered the scorching pain
their harsh words brought as
They severed their weakened ties
letting loose his mind he can no longer reign.
Radioactive green hiding the eternal fight
Arctic blue in which pain and sorrow flow
Black and mysterious as the ebony night
White and pure as the fresh fallen snow.
Their words as sharp and toxic as
the glow in the irises of his eyes
He whimpered as he stared at them in fear
knuckle white from balled up fists as
He hissed out their betrayals and lies
emotions showing in each drop of a tear.
He hides behind a mask of weak
Yet strength and defiance slither just below
But allows them to think and call him meek
His jokes and attitude weren't just for show.
His heart as broken as
The home he lived in
He ran far from there, away from the horror
His soul darkened to the same black as
The bruises marring his milky skin
Don't look back, keep running forward.
Run to me quickly
Before you think to return
You've become sickly
Confused, for the abuse you've come to yearn.
